John W. O'Neal II, a dedicated genealogist, has built a Rebel Rose site as an adjunct to the O’Neal family site: http://www.onealwebsite.com/RebelRose/

One of the great records in American history is a voluminous collection of papers kept by both sides during the Civil War The War of the Rebellion: a Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies is now online and searchable at Cornell University. See http://cdl.library.cornell.edu/moa/browse.monographs/waro.html

A remarkable collection of Union soldiers’ letters home during the Civil War has been transcribed and until recently was available online at www.letterscivilwar.com. The site outgrew its allotted server space and may no longer be accessible.

The National Portrait Gallery, a museum of the Smithsonian Institution, has assembled hundreds of Civil War images, including many of the works of Mathew Brady, who photographed Rose and her daughter in the Old Capitol Prison. The Portrait Gallery’s exhibition is online at http://www.civilwar.si.edu/brady_intro.html.

Newspaper stories were a critical source in retracing Rose Greenhow’s life, but they were often buried deep in a library archive or stored on unindexed, hard-to-read microfilm. The National Endowment for the Humanities is embarked on an ambitious program to digitize the nation’s newspapers and make them available online to researchers, historians, genealogists and anyone curious about our past.
